Jesus? It’s me.

I don’t have much to say. Except hello. I’m having a really hard time. I hate saying it like that, but that’s what it is. Hard. Difficult. Arduous. I’m asking every day for You to help me. I honestly try not to think about You during the day because Your name brings tears to my […]

I Don’t Know What to Title This

Have you ever had one of those days where you can see how everything is going to finally come together? Where what used to be foggy is now clear? I can’t see it, but I can feel it. The pressure on my chest is slowly letting up. Is the weight is lifting? Or is my chest is […]

#TBT: On Janet Jackson and Fall

Today, I was late for work. I just needed to get myself together before having to encounter people. Any people. I had a rough night. I drove all the way to work, too. Usually I drive halfway and take the train the rest of the way. But today, I needed time to myself. To think. […]

Just one of dem days

It was a day. First rain of the season. Think I’m doing a good job at work. Left my cell in the car. Unlocked. Think I’m allergic to something in my office. Drank too much coffee. Nauseated in the afternoon. Worried that I’m not going to feel well tomorrow. Got home after dark. Three days […]

NaBloPoMo — October 7: Suited

Doing my current job is a stretch for me. A big stretch. I’ve been a student for the past eight years, all of my children’s lives. I’ve made my own rules, for the most part, especially with regard to how I spent my time. When I needed a break, I took it. When I was […]

NaBloPoMo – Day 1: Protection

Update: I’m participating in BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo for October. Goal is to post every day this month. I’m already behind, but I love a challenge!! Five weeks ago, I started a new job. Great work, hard hours, harder commute. Forgot how much I enjoyed the grad student life. Reminded me that in two years I want […]

MommysHere

I’m so tired this may not even make sense. The second shift is real. Really real. I’ve spent the last thirteen hours out of my house — out the door by 6:45 and not back in until almost 8. As soon as I open the door, I hear, “Mommy’s here! Mommy’s here!” You know how […]
